Dusty & Heeney; good names, great prices – Ep. 432

PODCAST: Heeney, Dusty, Ridley, Daniel are all cheap this week.

As the rich get richer in Fantasy Classic, we might need to get creative with our trades. Round nine showed us that having rookies on ground can spell disaster, so hitting up value picks could be the way to go as we aim to add consistency to our squads. Plenty of options are covered as we head towards round 10. Let’s go!

    Is Witherden and good choice for Houston. Also thinking about getting Steele for Treloar?

      why would you trade either of them? Houston is back soon isn’t he and Treloar is still a premo

    CJ and Phillips to Harmes and Zorko or powell and kozitzche to o Connor and Ridley

    The Player I’m thinking is S Ross. He has a great Break Evan and is cheap. I wouldn’t go anywhere near Heeney as he is to injury prone for me and Dusty will score well until Bolton is back.

    Campbell => O’Connor & Phillips => Anyone sub $764. Who scores more from now, Lloyd or Doc
    Zorko or Kelly?

    Biggest problem with Ladhams is he’s a decent chance to be out for Rd 14, just when you need him, as that’s the week Lycett’s due back.

    Can’t believe you guys didn’t have Leon Cameron in your top 3 worst coaches for Fantasy. This year his been worst than bevo. Kelly no where near the ball, Taranto up forward to start the season, not playing Flynn each week do i need to go on.

    Guys would it be better to get rid of powell now or burgess? powell’s on field and burgess is off field currently

    Jesse Hogan? Can he keep it up lads or gonna cop some attention?

    Hey Boy! My thinking this week was to go Lachie Sholl to Jordan Ridley considering Sholl has a BE of 101 and Tom Powell to Heeney. Only concern is Heeney being injury prone and whether he can score reliably?

    Which trade should I make:
    Warner to C Poulter and ROB to Grundy or
    Warner to Hall/Sidebottom and ROB to Ladhams

    Dusty helped me win a final once. My opponent had him and he stank it up for 25!

    Docherty, Mills or Lloyd??
